Peter Restores Tabitha to Life

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles 9, 36 – 43:

“Now in Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which translated
means Dorcas). She was completely occupied with good deeds and
almsgiving. Now during those days she fell sick and died, so after
washing her, they laid her out in a room upstairs. Since Lydda was
near Joppa,  the disciples, hearing that Peter was there, sent two men
to him with the request, “Please come to us without delay.” So Peter
got up and went with them. When he arrived, they took him to the room
upstairs where all the widows came to him weeping and showing him the
tunics and cloaks this Dorcas had made while she was with them. Peter
sent them all out and knelt down and prayed. Then he turned to her
body and said, “Tabitha, rise up.” She opened her eyes, saw Peter, and
sat up. He gave her his hand and raised her up, and when he had called
the holy ones and the widows, he presented her alive. This became
known all over Joppa, and many came to believe in the Lord. And he
stayed a long time in Joppa with Simon, a tanner.”

It was cloudy all day Sunday and we got a bit of rain in the morning.
It was not windy and not cold. I thank all those who sent me some
money last week, but I am still short of $300. I do not have any
heating oil yet and it is cold at night. Please send me some money via
Paypal and I will be so happy to receive this money which I need as
soon as possible. May the Lord bless you and may He fill you with His
love and grace.

Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior. Jesus gave me
these words which are written below: “I bless you My brother Melvin
and all My brothers and sisters who have great faith in Me and who
pray every day and love to go to Holy Mass regularly.
From the quotation from the Acts of the Apostles, you see the   great
work that Saint Peter, the Apostle, did in a small town called Joppa.
There was this great follower of mine named Dorcas, who did great work
for the people there. However, one day she died and they called Saint
Peter to come over. He was not far away at a village called Lydda.
Peter came over and the people of Joppa told him everything that had
happened to this holy woman. So he went upstairs to the room were her
body was. He asked the people to leave the room and then he knelt down
and prayed. After his prayer, he spoke to Dorcas these words, “Get
up.” She opened her eyes and sat by the side of her bed. Then Saint
Peter called the people and they came and were full of joy to see the
dead woman alive again. The news spread throughout the whole town and
many became My followers. I am still healing people today for I do not
want them to suffer and die before their time. I call you all to
believe in Me as your Savior who loves you with all My heart. I love
you all.”

Father Melvin
